The Most Common Reasons Clients Come to My Private Practice
I was recently asked in a deep tissue class I was teaching, “what’s the most common reason people come to see you?” My answer, without a doubt, is low back pain, closely followed by neck pain.
Early on in my practice I realized that focusing my efforts in becoming efficient and effective in these areas would greatly benefit both me and my clients. So, I hit the books (as they used to say) and learned everything I could about both the low back and the neck! From the kinesiology and anatomy of the area to techniques that different modalities utilize to address pain in the low back. I explored as much as I could.
As I began to apply what I was learning to help more of my clients, they began to sing my praises to their friends. To some, I was the “neck guy” and to others, I was the answer to low back pain. I don’t claim to have been “the solution” for every person who comes across my table, but for the most part I can say that my efforts paid off in happy clients and a busy practice!
Once I found success for myself, I wanted to share it with others. I wanted other therapists to be able to help as many people as I was and to thrive in their role as Manual Therapists. So, over a decade ago, I began to teach. One of my earliest classes was my Advanced Neck Work course. Today, I have all the knowledge collected over the years about the low back and then neck is distilled into the following online courses you can watch from home!
